Sen. Chuck Schumer latest Democrat trying to panic the markets

President Obama and his Treasury Secretary Jack Lew have been trying to panic the markets since the government shutdown took effect two weeks ago. And after the Senate failed to achieve cloture for a “clean” increase of the debt ceiling on Saturday, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) got in on the action, claiming the debt ceiling debate would worry the markets beginning today.

“We are now at the place to where I said, ‘You better be prepared because ya never know when it's going to happen,’” Glenn said on radio this morning. “Chuck Schumer was again trying to spook the markets, but Chuck Schumer isn't the only one. The President is saying the same thing.”

SCHUMER: I worry on Monday that when the American markets open, maybe because of this vote, that they will start worrying and not only will the stock market go down but interest rates go up and the value with the dollar -- the value of U.S. treasuries decline. It's very serious.

“Unbelievably irresponsible,” Pat said of Sen. Schumer’s remarks.

“I want you to know Chuck Schumer is right. Chuck Schumer is right. And here's why he's right,” Glenn explained. “As soon as the Fed decides to raise interest rates, this game is over. It's in a three-month death spiral.”

Columbia University Professor David Buckner joined Glenn on the Glenn Beck Program a couple of weeks ago to talk about the road that leads to hyperinflation. While the debt ceiling debate alone cannot achieve the “crisis” President Obama and his cronies speak of, it could serve as the trigger event David described:

PART I:

PART II:

“Just five or eight years ago, everyone said [this] could never happen. Well, all of them have happened. All of them have happened,” Glenn said of David’s analysis. “Now all you're needing is an event, and if an event happens that causes the Fed to raise interest rates, the stock market will then plummet and people will start to panic and in three months, in three months you could have an American dollar that is worthless.”

“Understand this is exactly what Chuck Schumer is now talking about and what they are cheerleading for,” he continued. “I don't even really have as much of a problem with Chuck Schumer doing it, but he's only doing it for political reasons. And I know that because he has mocked people like me before and mocked people like you for buying gold. He’s never warned you before. But anybody who has been warning you, when the situation wasn't this serious you can believe, but now they are doing it for political games and they will talk this market down.”

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
